Step 5: Decide on your mouth hinge

Do you want a tight mouth hinge or a loose one?

The loose one is less tiring to control. Leave 2cm between top of head and chin for a loose hinge.

A tight hinge is sewn at the corner of head and chin corners.
Dear Author, <br> <br>Where can one purchase EVA foam? <br> <br>Thanks, <br>P.J.
Hi<br>You can use a camping mat which is placed under sleeping bags, their rather inexpensive - I found them in a two-dollar shop. I found my EVA from a reverse garbage place, its a very soft thin foam which cost $4 for 6 metres. I noticed though on videos online, many people use whatever they have like cardboard, plastic bottles. So I think its possible to use a thin cardboard if your unable to find EVA sponge.
&nbsp;wow! this ible is exactly what i need. i've spent time looking everywhere for this info - Thanks!!
You're welcome, it takes a bit of hand sewing though, but if you don't mind it its quite simple to do. (There's lots of make puppets tutes on YTube too to do with performance which are pretty good.)<br />
Could you please tell me where one can purchase EVA foam? <br> <br>*P.S. - I didn't know how to most efficiently get this question to you, so I wound up posting it twice. I'm very sorry to clutter the comments. (I'm new to instructables and not sure how this works.)
